Making an internet profile doesn't really constitute getting "back into the game". If anything I think it pretty much gets you further away from it.
Well it's a start atleast. It's another option. I like to balance online with real life because online takes the guess work out of gay dating. Grindr is the virtual 'gaydar' when it comes to finding out who in the supermarket is gay or not. which leads to:
OneSongGlory saidSomeone said GrindR is good for that type of thing, never tried it myself.
Grindr is great and bad at the same time. I have met more guys from Grindr from any other site in a short amount of time, but the issue is there generally isn't any chemistry with them! It's like unbelievable. They talk all this that and the third online, and thru texts and when you meet them it's like their first time ever meeting someone. Lot of them seemed super shy and reserved. Not at all assertive. I've clicked with 2 so far. The site seems to have a high turnover rate or something. I don't know if it's my area or what.
Grindr also has a habit of being used to temporarily alleviate boredom, so a plethora of guys are meeting just to kill time and get a quick peek at someone. And the validity of their relationship status is questionable...
I haven't given up on the site, and probably won't until I find that person to become exclusive with. People go out to bars and spend hours (and money, and getting drunk) looking to have a meaningful conversation with 1 or 2 people, only to have them not call/never meet again. And I never meet guys out in public because most guys think I'm straight! I can consolidate all that wasted time and energy going online.
